Credits: The classic Cabochon ring also known as the Standard Form ring and the Pharaohs ring. This ring and many variations of this design have been done by Wire Jewelry Artists for at least the last 60 years. We have finally discovered that Tom Phelan is the original designer of this amazing ring. Furthermore, in 1947, Tom was clever enough to secure a patent for his design. Helen Goga discovered the US Patent number after examining a very small print in Tom's book Webs of Gold and Silver.
With this design you will be using square half hard or dead soft wire. You may use either soft or half hard it is your choice. You also can use 20 gauge or 21 gauge either gauge will work. You will also need 20 gauge half round wire, all in metal of your choice. For this lesson I use an 18x13 Cabochon stone. No special tools are needed for this design. This Tutorial includes Metric measurements as well Inches.
